The opera is a spectacle apart: it invites all the arts, offers the alliance of text and music, also attracts the greatest artists of the time for its staging, for its decorations. The opera house is a building apart: it is one of the most prestigious places in the big cities, a social marker of the city. The opera is a collective enterprise: from the singers to the technicians, from the conductor to the musicians, each one works for the success of the performance.
The opera is demanding: it asks its audience to know its rituals and to adhere to a whole series of radical conventions - on stage, everyone sings and everything is sung - to surrender to his delights. From the "pit" to the "sets", from "rehearsals" to the "premiere", Philippe Jordan invites us to discover all the dimensions of the opera. Shedding light on the traditions of this musical genre through the prism of his own experience, he also reveals his conception of orchestral conducting, of relations with the public, with singers or directors, etc., of opera in sum.
